Oregon Team heads to the Hungaroring with a revised line-up

Less than a week after the Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe race at Le Mans, Oregon Team is set for the fourth out of eight International GT Open rounds scheduled this coming weekend (22-23 June) at the Hungaroring track.

The Italy-based squad heads to the halfway point of the season with a partially revised line-up. Alongside Alessio Deledda, second in the recent event at Spa and winner at Hockenheim in one of the Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO2 cars fielded by the Jerry Canevisio&Giorgio Testa-led team, will not be the factory driver Jordan Pepper. Due to a clash with the IMSA’s Six Hours of Glen, the South African driver will be replaced by Maximilian Paul, a front-runner in the DTM, who makes is return to the Oregon Team with which in 2023 raced all the GT Open championship claiming a victory at the Hungaroring and three more at Paul Ricard, Nürburgring and Monza.

Another novelty concerns the other factory driver Leonardo Pulcini, who will not pair with Rolf Ineichen, who had an incident in Spa. The Swiss driver will be replaced by 19-year-old German racer Simon Connor Primm, who has some experience in the ADAC GT Masters.

No changement instead for the duo Marzio MorettiArtem Petrov, who showed well at Spa in the qualifying and finished ninth after a difficult season start.

The two free practice sessions will kick-off the weekend on Friday. The first of two qualifying sessions is scheduled on Saturday at 9:45am, followed by 70-minute race one that will start at 2:30pm. Qualifying two will commence on Sunday at 9:15am. Race two will start at 1:45pm.

As usual, both races will be streamed live on championship’s YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/user/GTOPENseries.
